"We - His Inheritance" - 02/28/17 - Deuteronomy 3-4
"But you—God took you right out of the iron furnace, out of Egypt, to become the people of His inheritance—and that's what you are this very day." (4:20)
There are many times when I think about and then immediately thank Him for where He has rescued me from.
It is often, I realize even while I lived apart from Him, He still shielded me from what could have happened.
It is often, I thank Him for the times I haven't had to suffer the consequences I could have.
It is often I realize how He rescued me.
He rescued me from the fires of hell.
Outside of Him, our "iron furnace" is a life of being in the world. Trying to fill a void, (which only He can fill) with the secular things of this world. He removed our soul, our spirit, from "Egypt" (the world) and brings us to Him. To His place.
And although we are worn over, dirty, full of self - He wanted - NO......
He desired each one of us to be His.
"We" who are His Inheritance.
The King of Kings, Lord of all is our ABBA - our Daddy.
We become His princess or His prince.
We become His heir to an inheritance which all earthly things can not even compare to.
And each of us have a mansion with many rooms being built.
We shall one day live in a place where gold looks like glass.
But, the very best part of our inheritance, the very best part - is we will walk and be with our Daddy face to face. For eternity.
He will live with us in our mansion.
He will walk on the street of gold with us.
Our ABBA. Our Daddy. He is The King of Kings. Forever.
On the very day we accept Christ, we instantly become His child.
There is not a waiting, trial, or testing period.
It is immediate.
Bound in a never ending covenant.
Only broken if we choose to walk away from Him.
Each of us. We are His Inheritance. Sealed in His blood.
